Children are a gift from the LORD

Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.
Psalm 127:3

I posted about Jason's birthday on July 19.
Cory's birthday is on July 29.
Today is right in the middle of those special dates.

We placed these flowers in church today
to honor their birthdays.

I didn't think to take a picture in church, so this is taken on 
the floor of my foyer. The rug goes well, don't you think?

You can't see but the flowers are arranged in a basket.
I asked for yellow and orange flowers, 
and I think the florist did a great job.

Isn't that lily gorgeous?

I don't know what kind of flower these are,
but I think they're very pretty.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 
James 1:17

I don't think it's cheating for me to tell you to google Vesuvius' eruption in 79AD.
I mentioned that in the last post.
